At Bangor University, we place a high priority on caring for and supporting all our students. The University is aware that caring may have financial implications with students experiencing higher travel costs and or find themselves less able to work part time to supplement their student finance awards. To help easy some of these financial worries Bangor University offers student carers with an annual bursary of up to £1,000 from the University’s Hardship Fund.
A carer is defined as : A carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot cope without their support – Carers Trust
(Please note that these duties would be in addition to the usual caring responsibilities that a parent would have for a dependent child.)
To apply call in or email the Money Support Unit for an application form. Return the completed form with evidence from a professional person, who is aware of the family’s situation and your caring responsibility. We will also if you were previously in receipt of Carer’s Allowance, need you to provide proof from the Department of Work & Pensions that this has now ceased.
If you are carers who are paid a salary for your caring duties or are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance we regret that you are not eligible for this bursary.
